The Data10 survey for the municipal elections in May shows that while Alberto Núñez Feijóo is a profitable asset for his party, Pedro Sánchez subtracts votes from the PSOE. This is so because while the PP would obtain 30.2% of the votes in the municipal elections -1.1% points less than in the general ones-, the Socialists would obtain a better result in the local elections (2.2 points above; 27 .2% vs. 25%). The conclusion, beyond the fact that we are facing two elections with different characteristics, is that the PSOE general secretary is not an incentive or revulsion for his party and that the Socialists will reap a better result in May -in the municipal and regional elections- than in the generals, with, presumably, Pedro Sánchez as a candidate for the Presidency of the Government.
In the PP the situation is different and there is not much variation: it is true that their intention to vote for the generals is slightly higher (31.3% compared to 30.2%), but we are facing a range without too many changes. In any case, if we compare the result of the previous municipal elections, in which the PSOE led the PP by seven points, with the forecast of the survey for the elections next May in which the PP would lead the Socialists by three points , the conclusion is that we are facing an electoral turnaround of enormous proportions. And that can be vital to land a final blow to socialism in the general elections. Seven months will elapse between one election and another, too short a time for Sánchez to be able to pull new rabbits out of his hat. Everything can be expected from the President of the Government, but in the current circumstances the truth is that the municipal and regional elections in May are, on this occasion, of decisive importance. Feijóo adds and Sánchez subtracts, according to the Data10 survey. It is not a minor matter, but rather the confirmation that the PSOE general secretary is, more and more, a noose hanging around his party’s neck.
